ENERGY TRANSFER DONATES $75K TO GOLDEN TRIANGLE EMPOWERMENT CENTER

  • Golden Triangle Empowerment Center (GTEC), which provides job training and placement services for overlooked and underserved communities in the Port Arthur area, today received a $75,000 donation from Energy Transfer. The donation from the Dallas-based midstream company will enable GTEC to purchase new equipment to help the nonprofit organization transition their curriculum into a virtual learning environment.“This generous donation from Energy Transfer will allow us to purchase new computers to increase the number of students we train and place as we transition to an online environment,” said Melvin White, founder of GTEC. “Since the pandemic, we have had to adjust our curriculum to maintain a safe environment for our students and staff. As the majority of our students come from underserved communities, they do not always possess the technical equipment required now that we are transitioning to a virtual environment. This donation will allow GTEC to loan students the newly purchased laptops and hotspots to complete their coursework from the safety of their homes.”
